    Not a huge/expensive item, but I searched years for the old style solar deflector that goes on top of the GT/LX hatch. A member here had one and was willing to give it to me. Turns out the person lived about a 1/2 mile from me. I insisted on paying, they refused. Very generous, I thought, getting something you really want from a stranger for free. So rare.

    about a year ago when gas was almost 3 bucks a gallon... i pulled up to one pump the was set in-correctly.. I filled up my entire tank in that stang with 93 octane at .17 cents a gallon... YEP...

    then I ran back to my place and told my roomates.. but by the time we made it back to that same gas station they had corrected the problem. :rolleyes:
